If you feel regret over going too far in a relationship or wish you had not met someone, it means that person has done great damage to your feelings and mindsets.
The red signs of a dangerous person were already there from the start.
But, you hadn’t paid attention to that or ‘that person’ played you perfectly well.
How Do You Know Someone Might Be Dangerous To You?
When it comes to dangerous personalities, not every time does it refer to the people who are a threat to the whole society and the community. Of course, they’re the ones you should watch out for.
Yet, there are also some threatening people who don’t look or feel like danger, but they are.
These are the people that are around you at your office, in your colony, around your home, and sometimes they sit right beside you.
Whoever they are, they have just one mission and that’s to destroy you.
Not every dangerous person attacks you physically, but some attack you emotionally and mentally which is more painful.
And that’s quite severe, due to which you may lose your sense of feeling and thinking positive about anything or anyone thereafter.
Such people come into your life in the form of the nicest and kindest person.
Despite their very clear harmful intentions, they don’t let you feel it from the beginning.
However, if you pay closer attention, you may get a glimpse of their true image and the intentions they’re hiding.
You really wish that if you have aware of such red signs earlier, you could save yourself from a lot more damage.
13 Signs of a Dangerous Person
No matter how smart such dangerous personalities are, they always accidentally drop some hints in the process.
And the most common signs of a dangerous person are there to save you from the potential threat that is coming toward you.
The earlier you know these dangerous qualities in someone, the safer you can be. And once you identify such common traits, you can use this as a checklist to stay safe.
1. A strange person whose presence feels no good.
In your guts, you feel that all the time. It warns you about potential threats from a certain person.
If after being with someone, you feel emotionally drained, spoiled, and wasted, that person may not be right for you.
They literally added nothing positive to your life.
Whenever you’re around them, you’re constantly experiencing most of the negative emotions at the moment or during the rest of the whole day. This is obviously not good at all.
It could be your jealous boss or the two-faced friends, whose looks and feeling toward you, make you feel uneasy.
Don’t ignore your instincts and the signs, that inform the existence of dangerous personalities.
2. A suspicious person who makes you uncomfortable.
Even though you’ve not met with them or have no connection, you feel threatened.
Because of the way they look at you, you find it awkward and unnatural.
You mostly catch them staring at you from a far distance but they never stop still.
Not only that, when you are around them, they say or do something weird, which means someone is planning to harm you, and you should be extra careful with it.
The presence of someone makes you feel uneasy and insecure about you and these signs that someone might be dangerous for you, possibly.
3. A critic who has all the time for arguing and complaining.
All of us can be critics at some point, but not everyone can argue about anything.
This happens mostly in competitive environments where people are more interested in pointing out the flaws and mistakes of others who are doing great.
Yeah, they do nothing good for the environment.
Being with them, you’re going to waste your mood and a good time. Because, they get under your skin and keep you annoyed.
They never appreciate you nor value your presence when you’re with them.
Everything you do for them, they just overlook or don’t respect.
When you feel unappreciated by your boss or partner, you might lose confidence in yourself.
Such people eventually make you feel worse about yourself by painting out your flaws…
And making you feel ugly about yourself, these are nothing but signs of a dangerous personality that you should be aware of.
Around such a person you mostly feel disvalued, ignored, and worthless.
4. A controller who wants to control everything in your life.
Such people keep an eye on you and control every aspect of your life.
That’s not limited to such a controlling person or partner in a relationship, sometimes they can be a friend who wants you to stay with them and forget about your priorities at the moment.
Such difficult people think that they deserve to get special attention.
Dominating the conversation, never respecting your boundaries, or feeling no hesitation to make fun of you are signs of a dangerous person who better stay away from.

But, they end up getting things done from you that you are not ready for or don’t want to do.
For that, they may ghost you, do silent treatment on you, or pull away from love from you, temporarily.
Although such behavior seems harmless, it wastes your time and spoils your mood.
Don’t be tricked by their good looks and communication skills. They are still able to cause you a great deal of emotional pain as well as a financial one.
Feeling worst about yourself after doing what they want is a sign someone is dangerous.
6. A narcissist who only values themselves and no one else.
No one means anything to them. They act like they’re the only ones in the world.
Some people are so focused on themselves and do not pay attention to what they do or say to others.
Like spoiled kids disrespect their parents, they show their toxic nature to most others without any reason.
They feel like they deserve respect, attention, and admiration more than anyone else because they’re the perfect human being.
When your best friend or partner is self-centered and it’s you who has to sacrifice your values and respect, then these are signs you’re dealing with a dangerous man who is never going to change.
